17/12/2020 - Floor and wall tiles have the ability to generate trends or contribute to defining the creative lines of a design project thanks to the fusion of the functional qualities of ceramic materials with its versatility and its infinite possibilities of formats, colors, graphics and installations. Following a preview of the ceramic collections inspired by three of the macro trends that will shape design in 2021.
This macro trend is characterized by a tribute to simplicity in everyday life, without sacrificing certain style objectives. The way to achieve the simplicity it promises is through a uniqueness that seeks purity, praising the form and reaffirming the distinctiveness of the materials. In this trend, ceramic tiles contribute the perfect affinity to create spaces that breathe this ideal of aesthetic purity.
This is how ceramic creations inspired by simple, minimal and almost “poetic” shapes predominate. In this trend we find a great variety of color ranges. From light and soft natural tones, to stronger colors such as greens, blues and yellows, evoking organic and clean tones.
This trend defines a creative and renewed traditional style, where the space itself is what shapes the projects. The trend encompasses a new cultural and heritage philosophy that places the traditional materials at the center of the design. This approach is also reinforced with a perspective that includes environmental responsibility, which connects with the sustainable commitment of the ceramic tile industry.
It is characterized by the search for a serious, simple, rustic authenticity and, ultimately, timeless design. Simple graphics, abstract geometric motifs and traditional-contemporary-inspired patterns such as stripes, rhombuses or ethnic patterns predominate. Color range goes from the lightest tones such as stone grays and beiges, to earth colors, to colder tones such as water 10green or grayish blue.
Announces a certain freedom of taste and tone that makes the spaces really stand out. A bohemian, artistic, vibrant and joyful vision that results in a new form of expressionism in shapes, materials and colors. The freedom of configuration provided by ceramic collections becomes an ally when opting for this trend in interior design projects.
The creations are inspired by the abstract forms and rhythms of the second half of the 20th century. Designs go from free forms to other rounded and organic structures. These coexist with geometric configurations and graphics of a powerful and vibrant design. Rustic and more sophisticated finishes predominate, highlighting natural-inspired finishes, as well as stone finishes, blackened metal and colored glass.
They have a warm and muted range of colors, highlighting the saffron, terracotta or garnet tones, which contrasts with wild tones such as fir green and turquoise blue. The trend also brings back the application of dark neutral colors such as chalk tones and black.
